Older Americans and Adult Abuse Prevention Month 2022
Older adults play vital, positive roles in our communities – as family members, friends, mentors, volunteers, civic leaders, members of the workforce, and more. Just as every person is unique, so too is how they age and how they choose to do it.
This year's theme for Older Americans Month 2022 is Age My Way and we focus on how older adults can age in their communities, living independently for as long as possible and participating in ways they choose.
May is also Adult Abuse Prevention Month. Reports of abuse, neglect or exploitation can be made by calling 703-324-7450. Reports can be filed for people who live alone or with relatives or who are residents in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, or group homes.
